Good Morning!!! 😛
Do book lovers influence your reading? They sure can for me! A good enthusiastic talk about a book and really – I start to crave it. If it can make someone else excited…. I want the experience. Here is an example:
I am in New York last month having dinner with a lovely group of bloggers. Suddenly someone mentions a book I have never heard of before. Night Circus.
“It’s about a circus that only appears at night”
“It is going to be awesome – very YA – this will be a hit!”
“It is said to be the next Harry Potter!”
Whoa. Stop the presses.
I want this book.
The Book Expo is out of the ones they handed out. I come home and I email the publishing company of my interest explaining my conversation at BEA… and then I wait.
Packages come… not it. not it. Not it.
All beautifully packaged in Circus striped paper and a lovely red ribbon addressed to me.
I do not want to open it.
Too pretty. 😛
So I finally feel like I am over a blogging funk. Yesterday I wrote 5 reviews. It felt awesome. For the last week and a half when I went to write a review I suddenly was exhausted just thinking of adding the pictures, the synopsis, my thoughts, linking to Amazon, Good Reads, my Reading Map….. GAH. I usually closed the laptop and went to bed instead of writing anything.
BUT – yesterday for the first time since before my bike accident I came home… did a couple minor housecleaning things… and CHILLED. Yup. Sat in the recliner with a cup of chicken soup and a bottle of water and I wrote the afternoon away. I even prepped all my posts for my current reads and listens.
Today I hope to write the two interviews I have ready to go, and hopefully just read this evening. Ahhhhhh….. just read. I like the sound of that. 😀
